Stanley Johnson Rejects Dunk Attempt in Summer League (VIDEO)

by July 09, 2015

The Detroit Pistons have to be pleased with the play of Stanley Johnson in the Orlando Summer League. The former Arizona Wildcat has been doing it all, averaging 17.8 points, 7.5 rebounds, and 2.3 steals a game on 64 percent shooting from the field. If you didn’t think this guy was worth the No. 8 pick in the 2015 NBA Draft before, you probably do now.

With his athleticism, Johnson has the ability to be a serious factor on both ends of the floor. In the highlight above, watch him sprint back and time his jump perfectly to deny Romero Osby at the rim.

While he’s been impressive so far, Johnson has his eyes set on bigger goals—like going head-to-head with LeBron James or one day gracing the cover of SLAM Magazine. Guess we’ll have to stay tuned.
